Proverbs 9:10-12 (NLT) Fear of the Lord is the foundation of wisdom. Knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment. Wisdom will multiply your days and add years to your life. If you become wise, you will be the one to benefit. If you scorn wisdom, you will be the one to suffer.
God of Wisdom, thank you for being in control. Your word tells us to seek wisdom and that the beginning of wisdom is knowledge of you. So today, Lord, we ask that you open our eyes. Help us to know you better. Give us discernment about what is good and right and true. Help us to know how to care for this wonderful creation you have given us. Give us a heart to feel compassion for others. Help us to be wise in everything we do so that our days may be multiplied. You are awesome, God! And we give you the glory, in the name of Jesus. Amen.
